When offered the chance of ageless beauty, Dorian jumps at the chance to lead a daring and unscrupulous double life in order to remain youthful. If given the same opportunity would we yield to the same temptation? In a world where beauty and appearance is at the forefront of everyday life, Dorian Gray paints a vivid picture of vanity, cruelty and corrupted innocence.
Following the success of last year’s Frankenstein which transferred to Wilton’s Music Hall, comes another stripped back retelling of a classic story. An all-female cast bring Wilde’s gothic masterpiece to theatrical life in this fast-paced 75 minute production directed by Owen Horsley, whose credits include Salomé for the RSC and Associate Director of Cheek by Jowl.
The Picture of Dorian Gray will also be touring to schools from 25 September to 14 October. For more information please call 01635 570927.
